    Man Hendrix cleans up nice. Every other picture I’ve ever seen of him he looks like he just came out of the dryer.

    Wilson knew how to pick guitarists. Hendrix here, later Duane Allman.

    This just made me realise I don’t think I’ve ever seen a picture of Jimi Hendrix in colour before

    And as usual, he’s playing the guitar upside down. The truly brilliant just do things their way, like play the guitar upside down and then translate scales and such to account for the inversion. Blows my mind.

    Did Wilson Pickett have Thrush? Or did whoever colorized the photo get all the way to his tongue at the and they were like, “Eh, I’ll leave it white. No one will notice!”

    EDIT: Not sure why the downvotes? Thrush, otherwise known as oral Candidiasis, is basically a yeast infection that occurs in the mouth. Very common in bottle-fed babies but also in adults. One of the main symptoms of it is when the tongue is white in color.

    This is from May 1966. The Atlantic Records party to launch Percy Sledge’s ‘When A Man Love A Woman’ album. You can see the very distinctive cover of the album behind Hendrix.
